Health chiefs clear nurse of wrongdoing
A north-east nurse who was accused of carrying out unauthorised operations has been cleared by health bosses of any wrongdoing.
Margaret Thomson reportedly carried out procedures on five patients without getting permission from doctors where she worked at the Mintlaw GP surgery.
She was accused of ignoring the threat of infection by cutting a lump off a patient’s finger without permission, and removing dead skin from a diabetic patient’s foot which could have resulted in the loss of a toe.
